IRS Tax Transcripts And Tax Copies  


Per IRS instructions, taxpayers can get two types of transcripts from the IRS:


  1. Tax Return Transcript.  A tax return transcript shows most line items including AGI from an original tax return (Form 1040) as filed, along with any forms and schedules. It doesn’t show changes made after the filing of the original return. This transcript is only available for returns processed during the prior three years.

  2. Tax Account Transcript.  A tax account transcript shows basic data such as return type, marital status, adjusted gross income, taxable income and all payment types. It also shows changes made after the filing of the original return.
